    • Many, many thanks to everyone who took the time out to submit a list! I've done the preliminary tally, but I'll take a closer look at the file tonight and try to make sure there are no issues (i.e. Pussycat Dolls vs. The Pussycat Dolls being separated and counted as different acts). The countdown's projected start date is anywhere between tonight and Saturday evening, completely dependent upon my ever-fluctuating energy level. I'll try to get this wrapped up by month-end, though.

      If anyone wants to submit a list between now and whenever I officially lock the ballot box, feel free to! For now, a huge shoutout to the below committee that's "elected" a queen by a margin of two points!

                      They also have the same number of votes.

                      I might use number of #1 votes as the tiebreaker and we'll be good to go. If we don't get a 54th voter by this evening, that's how I'll break the tie.

                        A tie like that is always my biggest fear when doing a countdown or something similar But at the same time, it's rather impressive that it is happening with so many voters - what about a double crowning?

                          AS4 vibes.

                          That's not a bad suggestion. I'll consider it.

                                  • My gym partner introduced me early on to supersets and here we have a colossal set, all ranks from nos. 846-101. Some highlights:

                                    - Despite the namedrop in the OP, Nadine Coyle only managed a singular vote...and a singular point; as such, she's the lowest-ranking Girls Aloud member.
                                    - Fairly popular names on the site à la Carly Rae "Jepson", Atomic Kitten, and Iggy Azalea, are out of the top 200 and are beaten by...Lindsay Lohan.
                                    - The highest-ranked Girls Aloud act is Cheryl, who finishes at no. 115.
                                    - Paramore miss out on the top 100 by a single point.

                                    Spoiler!

                                            Influential, timeless pop music legend. Paved the way and deserved to be in the top 20 at least.

                                              • Wow, that is a mammoth list

                                                Lots of people I’ve heard of and lots I’ve not - I’ve already lost a fair few! I’ve gone up to #390.

                                                MNEK I placed at #42 in my list so I was his only voter. He’s been behind a lot of his own good stuff but also that of other artists, and he’s still only mid-20s.

                                                Hot Since 82 was at #39, never expected anybody else to vote for him as he’s a house DJ who hasn’t had a chart hit but has released consistently great deep house for almost a decade.

                                                One place higher were Rudimental - threw some points their way in spite of the awful These Days because as well as their other two brilliant #1s they are still capable of making great dance music now.

                                                Can’t believe nobody else gave Becky Hill a single point! She’s been a bop-machine for the past five years, as well as having some beaut stuff earlier in her career. She’s a saviour for dance music at the moment. I placed her at #33.

                                                I was also the sole voter for Roisin Murphy, at #25. Her Overpowered album from 2007 is a masterpiece and she was back in top form last year, as well as littering the 2010s with some great electronic stuff.

                                                At least one other person voted for Lizzo; even though she’s still pretty new in mainstream terms, her debut era was so good and she was so enjoyable at Glastonbury that I put her at #41.

                                                I suspected Tensnake would be another lone vote for me, at #19 in my list. Mainline and Coma Cat are his masterpieces but he has created a tonne of great remixes over the last decade or so and his album from 2020 was fab.

                                                Poor CRJ, I definitely thought she had a chance at being a fair bit higher based on UKMIX generally loving her. Run Away With Me alone deserves top 100! #34 on my list.

                                                At #17 in my votes were Gorgon City, another dance act who had a few big hits in the mid-10s but are still going strong and have released one of the best songs of 2021 (You’ve Done Enough) - they’re just still great at doing that commercial house stuff and work with cracking vocalists.

                                                Friendly Fires I had at #28, nice to see more voters for them. Great era about ten years ago and then again about 2018/19, also absolutely brilliant live.

                                                Kim Petras picked up votes from me at #43, discovered her about 2 years ago and have loved almost everything since, great popstar who deserves to be big.

                                                There’s a few I could have voted for if I had more room, such as Dizzee Rascal, Sigala, Alesha Dixon, Wombats… but I can’t believe I missed the amazing Freemasons out of my votes completely - they may have even made my top 10, definitely a glaring omission.

                                                Also Lisa Scott-Lee. She was just behind Linkin Park.

                                                Who the hell gave Michael Rice 36 points?!
